Hello everyone,
I was searching the net, but found only threads wit deluxe version.
What about non-deluxe? It has nforce 560, will it be ok? thanks

Here is the CPU list for M2N-SLI: http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=FsG6bN2HsOMpwLxD

It supports a limited number of AM3 CPU's (95W) with the latest BIOS. I would upgrade to either these three:
  • Athlon II X3 445
  • Phenom II X3 740
  • Phenom II X4 945

    Thanks for reply. I saw Phenom X4 955 on ebay for good price, what would be a problem with that processor?

    Since the X4 955 is not a supported CPU, it will either 1) not boot or 2) boot but run as a non-supported CPU at downclocked speeds. You will want to get either of the two I originally listed for your best options. They are supported by the board and will work with the latest BIOS update.
